Why This Mom Stripped Down In Public To Promote Her Message!
Amy Pence-Brown is close to 40, and has personally described herself as a "fat feminist mother". In an act of defiance, Amy made the brave decision to get nearly naked in a public market in Idaho and have strangers comment on her body. She had them literally comment on her body. She blindfolded herself and stood there in a bikini with markers in hand. At her feet was a sign that invited passersby to draw a heart on her skin to support self-love.

The stand for self-love resulted in people of all ages, genders and body types coming together for body acceptance. "All bodies are good bodies." Amy explains. "I was a chubby kid turned curvy teen turned fat mother, but have been at peace with my body for many years. I was hoping this project would help others do the same." She instills that message to everyone she knows, and especially to her young children. Amy dreams of a world free of body shaming and insecurity, and hopes her little project changed the perspectives of at least a few people. After it went viral, her video has touched the hearts of millions. Many people have reached out to Amy to share how her video has helped them. From those who struggle with body image issues, eating disorders and problems accepting themselves, it has given them hope and inspiration. What is your take on Amy's powerful video?
